Christoph (Kristof) Hahn (born 6 February 1959) is a German guitarist, composer, and translator. Hahn is best known for his lap-steel guitar playing in the New York experimental rock band SWANS. He joined the band in 1989 for the Burning World tour and played on the subsequent album White Light from the Mouth of Infinity (1990). He left the band in 1992, joined SWANS' bandleader Michael Gira's follow-up project Angels of Light in 1998 and became a constant member of the SWANS relaunch from 2010 until 2017. His approach to the lap-steel guitar is less rooted in traditions but more drone-oriented, creating vast soundscapes that at times erupt into sonic thunderstorms and at other times resolve into ethereal melodies.
